Personally, I much prefer to work in Pages, Numbers and Keynote but have Office on my desktop for those times when I absolutely have to have MSFT crapware to work with someone else's docs.
I can remember way back when the world was new and Word, MultiPlan and Excel arrived on the scene.

Seriously, there is much truth to what you say...
Every now and again, we get an opportunity (reason) to shed bloat, legacy baggage and reinvent ourselves -- MS should take advantage of this chance of a lifetime!
